One of the biggest complaints right now about smartphones is the short battery life. For good reason, people think they’re cellphone battery should last the entire day. However, that’s a challenge for many owners that use apps or surf the Internet a lot. So, if you’re in the market for a new cell phone and want one that has a long battery life, take a look at these four options from RIM.

The BlackBerry Z10 is the phone that is expected to turn business around for RIM in a good way. It is the largest BlackBerry smartphone to date and it doesn’t have the typical QWERTY keyboard found on most of RIM’s phones. Instead, the BlackBerry Z10 has a custom hardware keyboard that rivals other networks. Plus, you can use BlackBerry BBM for Android to interface with other smartphone users.
One of the greatest features on this phone is its battery life. It offers 13.5 hours of talk time. Most other smartphones have a hard time reaching six or seven hours. This is thanks to the BlackBerry Z10’s 1800mAh battery. Plus, the phone comes with several battery optimization features to help you get more performance out of your battery. According to CrackBerry, people have reported anywhere from 30 to 50 percent longer battery life.

When the BlackBerry Q10 finally comes out, it is expected to crush the BlackBerry Z10 in terms of battery life. And that’s saying something since the BlackBerry Z10 is so good. The BlackBerry Q10 is going to have a 2100mAh battery. It is the biggest battery ever put in a BlackBerry phone. Additionally, the display is more efficient so it uses less battery life. Plus, the Q10 is going to come packed with all the same battery optimization features as the BlackBerry Z10.

Most people are switching over to the BlackBerry Z10, but the BlackBerry Bold 9700 still has an impressive battery life for its size. It has 6.5 hours of talk time. Plus, most people reported that the battery on their BlackBerry 9700 lasted through the entire day, which was pretty awesome since most competitors couldn’t say that. Yes, you can just plug your phone in when you get in the car or are just sitting at your desk, but it’s a bit of a hassle. The BlackBerry Bold 9700 eliminates that problem.

The BlackBerry Torch 9810 has a cool slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a 1270mAh battery. It provides up to 6.5 hours of talk time. That’s just as good as the BlackBerry Bold 9700 model. However, the BlackBerry Torch 9810 comes with a lot more impressive features than the BlackBerry Bold 9700. For instance, there is predictive text, voice memo, an organizer and proximity sensors.
For most smartphone users, battery life is a factor, especially if they run a lot of apps or get on the Internet a lot. That’s one of the reasons BlackBerry smartphones stand out—they have powerful batteries.
